I have redirected the blog that used to be at to here at I have also renamed this blog to Scriptorium because it will contain posts having to do with Theology (which mostly comes from Scripture) as well as programming (for which I often use scripting languages). Scriptorium refers to the "written output of a monastery" [Wikipedia], and while I am not a monastery, I do now work at a school run by monks, so that's another reason for me to pick this new name.

I hope that the new readers of this site who are interested in Theology are not bothered by the programming posts, and I hope the old programming readers are not bothered by the Theology posts. I have gone back and forth in the past on whether to have separate blogs for these subjects, or one combined blog. Well, it's combined again, and I hope it's for the best.

Great Quote

Tim, the Enchanter, is a Ruby coder who also created a git installer for OS X. His blog has a great quote at the bottom: "What manner of man are you that can summon up code without C# or Java?"

Let the Coding Begin

As is obvious, I have not posted a lot on here lately. Part of the reason is not thinking about it, or putting something in Twitter instead. However, another reason is I haven't done much coding lately. Well, that's about to change. I need to do v. 2.0 of a Django app at work this summer, and I will be doing some coding at home in Processing to get ready to teach it in the fall. Hopefully these projects will inspire some posting here.
